Saint Peter Port is the capital of Guernsey as well as the main port. The parish of St. Peter Port is a small town consisting mostly of steep narrow streets
Guernsey's Capital, Saint-Peter-Port, reminds you of a small Breton port, with its granite houses that are moving slowly towards the sea. This major financial place is also the archipelago's biggest pleasure port and you should be sure not to miss taking a look at a few of the gorgeous yachts that have dropped anchor in the three marinas. Around the port, the small medieval streets are, for the most part, prohibited to vehicles and you will be able to happily stroll on the docks. Offshore, Cornet Castle, a medieval castle hosts four small museums: a marine museum, that of the Royal Militia, an arms factory, and an art gallery. Between April and October, make sure to have already arrived around noon because it is from there that the salvo is fired every day. The paved streets of the old town are surrounded by houses belonging to the Georgian era. In this area, you will be able to visit Town Church, the parish church built between 1042 and the 15th century, then head towards the Royal Court, which serves as both the Court of Appeal and the head of government and Parliament. Like in St.-Helier, the former food market is worth a visit for its architecture.
